Wide booster

possibly the safety 1st apex without the harness... but it would be high back and around $80. The frontier would work, too, but it would be very expensive. From the pictures I've seen it seems like the Harmony booster is wider than the Dakota. I think the cosco prospect backless booster is wider IIRC. My neighbors have a bigger daughter and have her in a combi dakota... but again, I think the dakota is more narrow than the one she bought so, idk.

I do NOT have a small rear (my hip measurement is a full size larger than my waist measurement, fun, and, you know, adult woman) and I can sit relatively comfortably in the Apex.

The Apex only goes to 100lbs, right? Your friends DD is almost that weight seems like it would be a waste of money. Can you get a more specific weight?

My oldest is in a prospect. He is 5 foot 2 and over 130 lbs. Yes, he is over the weight limit but he really doesn't fit in my van still.

Most of us would make the parental choice and recommendation to use any booster that fits safely, regardless of the weight limit, if the only other option is riding without a seat in a seatbelt that doesn't fit. :twocents::)

I understand, just thought there would be a better option, there should be. I know I would probably use a NBB if DD was over the weight limit.

Ah, gotcha. I think everyone mentioned the Apex because it's wider than available backless boosters. (Curses to these companies who can't just make a product that fits heavier kids..grrr...)

Our ozzi seat may work well for the OP. It goes to 120 pounds and is $69.99. I know it's not the cheapest out there, but is less than our olli seat.
Thanks

(PS, I try not to pitch our products on here, but thought this may be helpful)

Actually, I was thinking that too. I have the Oto, and I can sit in it. But ofcourse, the no arms helps!

I think it's a very reasonable suggestion. The Apex that others have suggested retails for even more than that, after all. :thumbsup:
